    What is the size I need for a picture to fill the entire background? I am a newsman and am looking for something related to that as opposed to static blue.

    The blog I need help with is evanjpretzer.com.

    Hi @evanjpretzer!

    That’s a good question! It can be tough to make sure a background image fill the whole background, since a site can be viewed on many different screen sizes. For a 27″ monitor, you’re probably looking at an image that’s 2600px wide by 1440px tall. Unfortunately, that still may not cover every case, and it’s a big image for someone to load, especially on a mobile device.

    I think a safer bet may be to use the ‘repeat’ setting for the background, and set an image that can be repeated — that way you can use a smaller image, and know that the whole background will always be covered, regardless of screen size. There’s some steps on how to do that here:

    If you have any further questions about the Connect theme, you can find the forum for that specific theme here (this is the forum for the Bold News theme):

    I hope this helps!
